let me finish tonight with this thought. i was recently advised that the difference between success and failure is captured in a single word -- purpose. muhammed ali was beaten in the ring, but always came back. he was never beaten in what he stood for. mike tyson was beaten in the ring, beaten in life. what he stood for is anybody's guess. boxing expert teddy atlas told me this, and i hope to never forget. he was giving me life advice, and i cannot thank him enough. everyone takes a beating now and then, often because you didn't do something you should have, or did something you shouldn't have, or you simply had a bad day, a bad week, a bad year. it's what you do then that sets people apart. look at the magnificent job secretary hillary clinton has done the past four years. she lost the nomination fight in 2008 and looks better now than she ever did. she looks happy, confident, strong. she looks like a winner. she certainly looked like a winner today before a group of senators and congressmen that included, let's face it, the serious, the comic, and the absurd. well, good for her, i say, as her legion of followers like to say, go, girl, go.
